requirement out of welfare. in fact, mitt romney breathed new life into it just a few hours ago right here on cnn. the other day on "60 minutes" president obama said some of his campaign ads quote, go overboard. well, today in ohio, cnn's jim acosta asked mitt romney if he was willing to make a similar admission about his ads. here's an extended portion of that interview. >> just the other day, you said the president has been trying to fool people with his ads and his speeches about your record, but fact checkers have also taken issue with your ads. haven't you also played fast and loose with the facts from time to time? >> we've been absolutely spot-on and any time there's anything that's been amiss, we correct it or remove it. the president, on the other hand -- >> even the welfare ad? >> absolutely. look, it has been shown time and again that the president's effort to take work requirement out of welfare is a calculated move, the same thing he did with regards to food stamps. he took work out of welfare -- excuse me, work out of the food stamps requirement. what was the result? the stud
morning, everyone. mitt romney kicks off the final day of his bus tour in ohio today. he is hitting the trail solo since paul ryan will be in colorado, but the two did campaign together yesterday for the first time in almost a month. romney and ryan walked out to the song "the boys are back in town." that's cute. and then they tried to lead a chant, but that didn't go to well, since no one else chimed in. romney is down eight points against obama in ohio in the latest "washington post" poll. in that is bad news because of the fact that no republican candidate has ever taken the white house without care rig the state. but team romney still thinks they are within the margin of error. they are also hoping that ryan can save the ticket. as for president obama, he is dolling out plenty of money in ohio. this is something we see every four years as presidential candidates pay particular at attention to certain swing states. in this case it's president obama with ohio. ohio took home four time as much energy as any other state from the clen energy tax credit and
was just junk. here comes neil cavuto. >>neil: hello, ohio. rebound and mitt romney, a partisan blitz, a state where the polls show the president now winning in a walk. for now. maybe because ohio's economy is on something of a tear right now. unemployment is well below the national average. business formation well above the national average. never mine the republican governor of the state, on wants to take a bow, a lot of business owners across the country did not get the memo. welcome, everyone, glad to have you. so much for voters in ohio swinging the president's way. to hear the c.e.o.'s of some of the largest companies in america, this recovery still is not. not swinging. not moving. not worth investing. seven out of ten expect hiring in the last three months of the year to be flat or lower. all of the expiring bush tax cuts that have not been addressed by either party have not lifted their spirits higher. way beyond ohio, more signs that americans in general are behind the eight ball. today the household income dropped more than 8 percent since the president took office. the pol
. specifically on what the governor -- former governor massachusetts, mitt romney, and president barack obama had said yesterday. specifically yesterday said -- specifically we want your general level confidence in each candidate on the area of foreign policy. here are the numbers to call. for democrats, 202-737-0001. for republicans, 202-737-0002. for independents, 202-628-0205. if you would like to take part in the program, there are different ways to do that. twitter.com/c-spanwj,an.o facebook.com or e-mail at journal@c-span.org. "the baltimore sun" encapsulate the speeches yesterday. they pointed out that president barack obama made an impassioned defense of the expression of freedom worldwide. mitt romney urged other nations to emulate the free economy and suggested that the obama leadership in the middle east has been inadequate and reactive. this is a short piece to start us off from the president at united nations yesterday, talking about the middle east. [video clip] >> i believe that this message must be rejected by all those who respect our common humanity. i have made it clear that th
the message is one governor romney brought here two days ago is that the economy cannot stand another four years of the president's failed economic policies and they're out here in the mountain west and the great plains and hear congressman ryan talk about the keystone pipeline and focusing on the country's national resources, bringing energy jobs online and putting people back to work and expecting the president to hit him on other things. >> one thing, though, ron, the obama campaign said, though, if romney loses ohio it is likely game over. is there a sense that the republican campaign is feeling that pressure? >> reporter: yeah. i think they're acknowledging they're behind. they don't believe it's game over and no republican president ever has gotten to the white house without taking ohio and even though he's behind, campaign insiders saying that their internal polling is much closer race than the public polls and will leave them where they are. they think they have a fight in ohio on their hands. >> ron mott reporting. now christin welker in bowling green. >> reporter: good afternoon
very close along those lines. right now, though, for the moment, the race looks like mitt romney is slipping and obama is in front. >>neil: i was talking about an easy electoral win to the president if you buy the polls, and i don't, but the popular vote is tight. on to what is happening in the swing states, republican governors like to point out and we will elaborate on that, wait a minute. we are running these states, you are seeing the improvements in a last them because republican governors are exacting the changes. what do you say do that? >>guest: it complicates mitt romney's tack. he is trying to make the case that obama is not good for the economy and we are worse off than four years ago but in a lot of states, in florida rick scott and in ohio, john kasich, they have unemployment rates under the national average. romney has had his message undercut. >>neil: where does that come? when times are good the incumbent benefits and the times are bad, he doesn't. the governor is not inconsequential although he or should be in the scheme of things, if they are not up for election
. >> gretchen: is that politicians in general. >> brian: i thought mitt romney at the clinton initiative was more direct and offered a solution. we should linkk our foreign aid to the behavior of the countries many of which blow up our embassies. >> gretchen: if you are strat jizing for obama you coast until the election because he is ahead in the polls. that's what they tell somebody. for mitt romney, you got to point out solution and point out the differences and especially in the debates and so that people will say what you stand for. they like president obama and they don't know as much about mitt romney. >> steve: they know one thing about president obama and that was brought to like by a friend of this program in the washington post. after our attack in the consulate in libya that the president was not attending the presidential briefings. he missed over half of them. surprise, every since the attack on the consulate, he went to sevenin a row which is a record for a number of months and lawmakers on capitol hill are disturbed by the statements put out by the ambassador to the unite
romney crisscrosses the state of ohio, a state no republican president ever lost and where early voting begins next week. >> i know there's some people who want more for years bute don' woue years like the last four years. bigger government, stimulus. >> meanwhile, president obama is also in ohio trying to hold on to that lead there. according to theat qupioll, ten points ahead and taking no chances. the president hammering his opponent at an event moments ago. >> i don't believe we can get very far wit leaders who wte off half the nation as a bunch spbi fhe o ne lives. and i've got to tell you. as i travel around ohio and as i look out on this crowd i don't see a lot of victims. i see hard working ohios. >> straight out on the trail and covering both cig nn w ron mott on the phone with congressman paul ryan's event in ohio. we have heard several messages over the last week of the republican campaign. what do we exct to hear today? >> reporter: thomas, good day to you. coressn ryusan hen wa to the event. we are at walker manufacturing making lawn mowers and we think the message is one g
university, mitt romney is in toledo. steve handelsman has news that romney got from ohio today. >> reporter: terrible news for mitt romney and his republicans. no republican has ever won the white house, none, ever, without winning the state of ohio. romney was doing pretty well there, behind by less than 1 percentage point earlier this month. but in the latest ohio poll, romney trails by ten. he's wrapping up his bus tour of ohio, a blue collar state that's must-win for mitt romney. >> there's dignity and honor and meaning in good hard work. >> reporter: but despite romney's work here, many visits, ohio may be moving out of reach. even with the help today of ohio native jack nicklaus who says he's laid off workers from his gulf business. >> we can't afford for mour years like the last four years. i know i sure can't. >> reporter: romney can't afford more polls like today. after he was caught on tape d disparaging the 47% of americans who said feel like victims. "the new york times" cbs poll finds romney trailing president obama. by 12 points in pennsylvania, by 9 points in florida, trailin
that he did not think that mitt romney would use the line that we've all been discussing so much, and that kathleen mentioned in the survey, the claim that obama has gutted welfare reform and has, i'm sure you've seen that ad, that all three of us, all four of us i think have debunked. so i want to play a little short video as an example of, about this and talk a little bit about why i do think we will hear. here we go. >> so this is a video from -- >> i will be the first to publicly say i was wrong, ms. coppola. because my objective is for people to know the facts and the truth on all of the stuff. >> you know what you should do? let me tell you what you should do. you should go on some kind of a truth tour.

at the united nations. governor romney was a new york. speaking at the clinton global initiative. the republican nominee did not miss an opportunity to criticize the president's reaction to the anti-american sentiment that has swept the muslim world. fox news chief white house correspondent ed henry with our report. >> reporter: after days of anti-american violence burning all across the muslim world, the iranian military pledged -- flex its muscles by unveiling a new drug they claim against the in the air for 24 hours and fly over 1100 miles, enough to reach israel and various u.s. military bases throughout the mideast. as the tensions grow new york city posted to presidential nominees of ring to vastly different visions. president obama address the general assembly and suggested he has little ability to shapeless happening on the ground. >> as we can solve every problem and the world the united states has not and will not seek to dictate the outcome of a democratic transitions abroad. >> reporter: a few minutes earlier republican mitt romney appeared with former president bill clinton at the i
's margin in 2008. seventy-two among hispanics and it is not that far off. also 22 for romney. what it means is that the idea that obama could get 80% of the minority again it's actually quite plausible based on this and other data. that looks like what it's going to get to. if he doesn't get 80, he will get 7 meters 79. as you can see by the right-hand figures, obama is actually doing better -- which is actually somewhat better than he did in 2000 and one he lost them by 18 points. remember what we said about the outlandishly large margin that mitt romney needs to be with white working-class voters. he is not anywhere close. that is the bottom line. this is true across many polls. you might see a margin of 20 points for mitt romney or a margin of 22 points. nowhere do you see the outside margin that he really needs to win the election. given how he appears to be holding support and then some of college graduate voters so that is where we are now in the national picture. as we know, these elections that we choose to have in the united states are not decided by the popular vote. instead, we h
they may win by three, four, five points, but remember how critical ohio is to mitt romney's math. hard to see how he gets to 270 electoral votes without it. why he's in the state today, president obama is in the state today. they don't spend time in states less than six weeks before an election by accident. >> chris, when we talk about this campaign, how is it possible, karen you weigh in here, how is it possible for mitt romney to win without ohio? there's a very narrow way but he would have to win both virginia and florida, and he's not -- he's not looking so great in those states right now either. >> one of the things -- >> right. >> one of the things that really is clear today also is there's a new mitt romney ad and this shows the real effect of that 47% mistake in the video because here's his first to camera ad, and what he's saying in the ad, is, you know, that he would take care of the middle class. let's listen. >> more americans are living in poverty than when president obama took office. and 15 million more are on food stamps. president obama and i both care about poor and m
